Fabulous large house over three floors. Excellently appointed with everything you need and more.
Very comfortable,beautifully clean. Close to all beaches and town. Welcome basket a lovely touch, cookies for kids wine for adults and fabulous selection of fruit. Thank you.
We stayed here as a group of 12 friends over the St Ives Food & Drink festival weekend and I chose this house as it looked perfect for our needs; plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms, a large, light living space and a great kitchen - and it didn’t disappoint! From the moment we arrived on a sunny Friday afternoon, the views over Porthminster took our breath away. It’s only a 5 minute walk to the shops and not much further to get to the beach.
The rooms were all a great size and well looked after. The kitchen was very well-equipped and we received a lovely welcome hamper which went down a treat!
The added benefit of 4 parking spaces makes this the perfect bolt hole for a St Ives getaway. Communication with the owner was efficient and well-organised. Nothing was too much trouble and we were adequately briefed on everything which made settling in very easy.
Thanks for a wonderfully memorable weekend. All the group commented on what a gem of a house this was so keep doing what you’re doing - we’ll be back!
Stay for a 1 week family holiday this April and we were really pleased with our choice.
Views from 1st 2nd and 3rd floors all great. Master bedroom huge with king size bed and benefited from the best views in the house with double bed settee to relax away from the kids and 2 chairs to sit and enjoy the views in peace away from the rest of the party and with nice en-suite with hot powerful shower.
Double room next door had views to rear of house and also had hot powerful shower in the en-suite and adequate space for clothes and luggage.
Also on the 2nd floor was a large twin room with 2 windows to rear and again plenty of space for the kids and their stuff. Also had single bed settee. This was right next to a full size bathroom with large bath and overhead rain shower.
3rd floor had separate toilet at the top of the stairs and then a large room with great sea views and king size bed, a single bed settee and en-suite with hot powerful shower and plenty of storage space. Finally the last twin room overlooks the back of the house and also had a single bed settee and got the last of the sun each evening so consequently was warm and benefitted from a fan to cool things down.
All bedrooms had TVs and the bedding was fresh and clean.
Lounge had plenty of space and seating with the double bed settee giving a larger family an extra sleeping space if required. Sky tv with sports and movies was a bonus and there was also a PlayStation available if required. Plenty of board games in the cupboard made for fun family games nights and the large dining table was great for the 10 of us to enjoy plenty of space to dine together at home when we didn’t feel like eating out. Kitchen had a huge fridge with water and ice machine and it was nice to have a dishwasher to use. Hamper was a nice touch with cake, biscuits, crackers, jam, fruit, wine as well as tea, coffee sugar and also supplied was dishwasher tablets, laundry detergent so we could use the washer and dryer as required and cleaning products do you didn’t have to get these to keep the place tidy during your stay.
The owner clearly takes care to supply all that is required to make for a relaxing stay in the beautiful st ives and as this is also in a fabulous location just 2 mins walk from the high street down some steps or 5 min walk to Porthminster Beach and 8 min walk to the harbour with Sloop Pub and all the watersports you couldn’t ask for a better holiday property. Parking around the back for 3 big and 1 small car is a bonus in st ives and handy to wiz up to Tesco 5 mins drive away on route to carbis bay.
We enjoyed a trip to the kidz r us theatre to see Mary poppins Jnr which was very good and the seafood restaurants are a must.
Fab time had by all and good communication with the owner by email and mobile phone. Thanks Craig for letting us use your place. Amazing house.
I stayed here with my family, including 2 children and a baby.
It is a wonderful house with incredible views of St Ives. Very comfortable and warm and very well equipped. The children appreciated the Sky tv and the men the Sky sport.
We would recommend this house to anyone
8 of us (and 2 dogs) just stayed at the Orla-Mo and we all had smiles on our faces when we saw the house. The little touches that the owners made i.e. fresh milk, food and wine hamper and fresh flowers in the lounge were really appreciated and very thoughtful. The beach is a 2 min walk and the harbour a 5 min walk so a great location. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend and were very impressed with the friendly service of the agents.
This house is just a five minute walk to the beach, shops, pubs and restaurants, and two minutes to the bus stop. The house is very spacious and had everything you needed. My family and I would definitely stay here again and I would recommend to friends due to location, the price and friendly agent.
Just one slight fault and that was the bedroom windows to the front of the house rattled as it was a really windy weekend so sleep disturbed at times but other than that a fabulous weekend had by all.
We were a group of 7 adults on a walking holiday. We found that Orla-Mor was in a great location close to the bus and railway station and the centre of town. The house was superbly equipped, clean and spacious. The owners had thought of everything in terms of what a holiday-maker might require and every member of the group was impressed. Orla-Mor is ideal for large groups.
